Jackie Taitz

Director of WE Day, WE Charity

One of the things I loved most about being a part of the WE Day team was seeing the impact it had on the youth who attended—there was such an amazing buzz of excitement and inspiration in the air. They felt motivated and empowered and ready to tackle the issues that mattered to them. It was a great privilege to be a part of such a profound experience for so many young people.

The best part of working at WE (then Free The Children) was the team I had the opportunity to work with. The broader WE team was filled with so many talented, hardworking and mission-committed people. And the WE Day team that I worked most closely with was just incredible—everyone worked tirelessly with the intention of creating a life-changing experience for the young people who attended WE Day.

I was and always will be profoundly proud and grateful to have been a part of creating and expanding WE Day. It is a unique and powerful event that touches the lives of so many young people and inspires and empowers them to make a difference in the world. I feel so privileged to have been a part of something like that.
